Location of Photo:

Mani Peninsula, Greece

Date/Time of photo:



Nikon D750 DSLR camera, Nikkor 20mm f1.8G lens, Vixen Polarie Star Tracker, Cokin P830 Diffuser Filter


This image is one of my all-time favourite images. It was captured during my recent trip to the peninsula of Mani, close to the very famous village of Vatheia. The meager amount of light pollution in this area gave me the opportunity to capture these amazing colours of the milky way. It was pretty pleasing to be able to see the milky way in such a bright way. In the technical part, this is a blended exposures image, where I used a diffuser filter to give this look to the stars and a more artistic feel to the image. I have chosen to place myself in the bottom left corner in order to be a measure of scale and to show the connection between humans and the universe.
